    I'm very interested in a Lemax LX50 ll light because it's smaller and lighter and will meet our needs better for the trails we ride, but Lemax sent me a email today with a special offer on their LX 70 Superpower. It's a limited supply offer. Just a heads up. I'm hopeful that they have the special offer on their smaller lights soon.

    Received that email too. 30% off is nice, but total price is still to much for me (and for most of us..)

    Lemax has never done any special pricing on the std units, I don't believe they ever will. Those sell more consistently to industry etc., the super powers are mostly sold to Flashaholics.
    We sell the XeVision version XV-LX50, XV-LX50-II and the XV-LX70.

    PS: I eat those words now, it appears they have now, 09/14/17

    I bet that if you ask them to sell you one for 50% off plus free next day air shipping plus 2 extra free batteries plus a free case, he may well just take you up on it...!

    I was offered the very same offers you were as I am sure everyone was. Even with all these blowout barn burning sales, no one is buying them..

    Did some comparison and with this discount, the LX70 is cheaper than the Polarion PH50 that a local dealer here offers. And the Lemax has more throw.

    No doubt it will. Had the LX70 out this weekend at FCW-13 event......outstanding on all fronts! Ordered the optional diffusor and it works amazingly well.

    Keep us in the loop!

    What did the diffuser cost?, if you don't mind me asking. I hope to get tracking info. tomorrow on mine.

    Let us know if you want to upgrade that light from 35/50 to 50/70, it can be done easily.
    It would remain smaller (head) and lighter as you prefer but the output would be greatly increased.
    You would get the same run times as the LX70 since the batteries are the same used for both.
    140/100 minutes (50/70) vs 200/140 minutes (35/50) runtimes.

    That is a very interesting option!
    How does it cope with the heat at 70W?

    We have multiple vertical "pockets" in our aluminum CNC machined case for our sectionalized PCB and the round shaped "mother board" control PCB board, you can see in the below photos. All of the "hotter" PCB components are very close (tight tolerance) to the large thermal aluminum heatsink mass in the vertical pockets and potted with thermal transfer potting as well. Our ballast is about 92% efficient, the best efficiency in the industry. Our hottest components are also closest to the outside edge of the ballast housing. All of this was done to optimize ballast performance and durability in the harshest conditions to meet very demanding Military and Aviation performance expectations.

    The Lemax large heat sinking fins are way over engineered (a very good thing), so it's not a problem to use OUR 50/70 ballast in the LX50-2. ONLY our XeVision proprietary ballast is made this way and is much more expensive to manufacture. The heat transfer to the outside of the case is very very efficient, compared to other ballasts that are only potted and in a thin wall (very inexpensive) low mass metal ring (cylinder), open on both ends and at most a thin metal bottom plate (disc) on some competitors.
    We don't depend purely on thermal transfer potting to absorb and move heat to the metal case of the ballast and out to the searchlight exterior. We also use premium grade thermal transfer paste at the ballast aluminum case diameter to searchlight interface, others often use no thermal paste at all which is not conducive to efficient heat transfer to the searchlight body. We optimize every factor in our ballast design. http://www.xevision.com/images/XePuck%E2%84%A22%20combi%20450.png

    That is indeed a interesting option, I don't have the new light yet. I now know I have options. Can't wait to see how it compares to my UDR.

    I have a UDR Dominator and love it......however the LX70 out performed it as expected...the LX50 will also.

    This is a fantastic option. Karlthev and I had the opportunity to do some beamshots and comparisons between sveral HID's and LED throwers last weekend...ie: Polarion PH50, Abyss, Maxabeam, UDR, Deft, a few others and my LX70. All I can say is the LX70 at 70 Watts is a stunner. Hopefully I'll get over the PhotoBucket debacle and be able to post some pics soon. iPhone pics but they came out pretty good.
